Abstract:

Personnel at the Naval Research Laboratory have conducted a radar sea return measurement program in conjunction with the Joint Ocean Surface Study JOSS II sponsored by the Naval Oceanographic Office. The 4FR system was employed to obtain sea return data for various sea conditions as a function of radar wavelength and polarization for depression angles at and near the vertical. The results obtained were incorporated with previous measurements at vertical incidence and compared to recent theoretical predictions. Author Modified Abstract
